​Services

Our in-house remanufacturing facility is staffed with highly-trained individuals. We have specialized in comprehensive valve remanufacturing for nearly forty years. Our knowledge of evaluating and service industrial valve surpasses that of others in the industry.

We service our own full line of Durbin Valves as well as those of our domestic and international counterparts. We take an industry-leading, 17-step process to remanufacture valves, including:


  • Disassembly, degreasing, and inspection, along with a thorough cleaning
  • Sanding
  • Sandblasting (glass bead blasting?) to remove rust deposits
  • Machining and repainting of parts
  • Full remanufacturing or replacement with new parts including:
    • Diaphragm
    • Diaphragm Spring
    • Packers
    • Packing Spring
    • Seats
    • Gaskets
  • Each valve is then recalibrated and individually nitrogen gas tested, ensuring that your remanufactured valve leaves our facility meeting the same high-quality standards as a new valve.


Our dedicated and trained staff are available to discuss products, parts, remanufacturing services, and technical information. Please contact today with any questions.
